Suggestion 1 - How have you configured the video output from the Sky (?) box, and how have you configured the video in to and video out from the DVD recorder?

They all need to be the same; either all 'PAL' (sometimes called 'Video' or 'Comp') or, alternatively, all 'RGB'.

If you've got them a bit mixed up, that might be the cause of the problem (but, frankly, I don't recognise the symptoms).

Suggestion 2 - If you've got them all on (say) PAL, try changing them all to RGB and test. Or if all on RGB, try putting them all to PAL and test. Any change?

Suggestion 3 - If you select any TV channel on the DVD recorder and view that on the TV, do you get the same symptoms?

If all that still gives the same prob, and if switching off the recorder clears the symptoms, I'm inclined to suspect the recently-bought recorder. I'm really not too confident about the above, but HTH.
